I have owned many different types of speedboat in my time however they’ve all come & gone – with the exception of this one which I’ve owned for approx 50+ yearsBuilt out of aero alloy, original Ford 100E engine, sealed cooling system – very economical to use. You could ski behind it all day on 4 gallons of petrol – if you wanted to.Approx 10 yrs ago I decided to check the engine – being a mechanical engineer by trade I was amazed to find that there was very little wear. So with new bearings, piston rings, gaskets & above all new valves & valve springs (which were totally weak) she had a new lease of life. I also fitted a stainless steel exhaust with a side exit (pictured) and a new stainless steel rudder. After running in she drove beautifully. I was amazed to find that she pulled me out on a mono deep start – I came out like a cork out of a bottle! Now unfortunately she has deteriorated through lack of use following an accident & I feel it is time for her to go.The steering cable broke (I will provide another cable) & the rudder for some reason has seized (I blame the Mrs & the lawnmower!). As you can see from the pics the trailer has rotted out through standing. You will need a trailer to get the boat & trailer away (alternatively she can be lifted with a hoist from the ski hitch – it is perfectly balanced) Also the glass on the rev counter has broken.I am sure this boat will go on for another 50+ years – but will need a little TLC….Please contact Nils for any further info 01480 470019 On Cambs/Beds borderAlso advertised elsewhere so reserve the right to remove from auctionNo paypal please
